Reviews:


"This is a beautifully illustrated and fully informative book which laymen can appreciate.

Virginian-Pilot and Ledger Star

"A volume anyone with an interest in Virginia snakes will want to have. It is also a work which should help create a new enthusiasm for studying and protecting these reclusive and ecologically important creatures.... A carefully written guide, technically accurate but accessible to the nonspecialist.

Roanoke Times

"This guidebook identifies snake species native to Virginia and conveys data about location, diet, reproduction, enemies, life span, distinguishing characteristics, size, habitat, and common names.
